Biography

Most southern music fans know Tim Sharpton as the keyboardist/writer for The Rossington Band and from the LYNYRD SKYNYRD TRIBUTE TOUR. Naturally, people tend to identify Tim with southern ROCK AND ROLL. Although this would be an accurate assumption, it would only be partially true. Tim has a deep and profound appreciation for all styles and genre’s of music. He came by this honestly.

Growing up in Muscle Shoals, Alabama was the perfect creative schoolyard for Tim. He started playing piano when he was 5, and was winning talent shows around the South at the age of 7. By the time Tim was 13, he was opening for the legendary Buford Puser (portrayed in the “ WALKING TALL” movie series.) Two years later, Tim signed his first artist/writer contract with Music Mill Recording Studios and began writing with some of the top songwriters in the music industry. At that time Muscle Shoals, Alabama was officially the “HIT RECORDING CAPITAL “of the world. Tim spent his teenage years writing, performing and playing studio sessions. He toured extensively with top acts and worked as an entertainer for the cruise ship industry. This had a powerful musical affect on Tim. He was exposed to every style of music under the sun. In order to work and keep working, every musician has to be able to become a musical chameleon. Tim learned all the standards, classical, jazz, show tunes, and even to learn to sing in Spanish. He wouldn’t take anything for the experience.
